Ok, so this beer is special to me, another top 10 beer for me... I was one of the first humans on the planet to sample this beer and it did NOT disappoint... This is other worldly and a must try if Lawson's ever bottles it again.

Like sinking your teeth into the perfect blend of tropical and citrus fruit is what Lawson's Finest Triple Sunshine delivers. Its seamless medley has crawled straight out of a can of Hawaiian Punch, wrapped itself around a ten-plus percent core and seeps deeply into the tastebuds for an unabashed assault upon the palate.

Its bright, nearly canary straw color is laced with a milky cloud and topped with a tall, creamy and persistent froth. But hovering over the snifter overwhelms the palate with all things tropical, citrus and orchard fruit; somehow eluding any semblance to beer.

Its bright and tangy taste is both mouthwatering and drying at the same time. Its hop acidity latches onto the tastebuds with teeth-churning red grapefruit, mandarin, lemon, pineapple, mango and apricot. As the ale swirls beautifully on the mouth, its distant backdrop of malt is delicate of honey, faint caramel and confection- giving its vibrant hoppy fruit character a sense of being vine-ripe, bursting with plump juices.

Hiding its strength masterfully, the ale hasn't forgotten about its dry American IPA underpinning- intent on allowing the hop flavor, dryness and smooth bitterness to command the show. Its fleeting finish is tangy, playfully warm and leaves the mouth begging for more.
